A gift membership to the Calgary Horticultural Society is a great way to share the joys of gardening.

A gift membership is a wonderful way to say Happy Holidays!, Thank You, Happy Birthday, Happy Mother’s Day, or Happy Father’s Day, or to celebrate other occasions throughout the seasons.

Enhance your gift with a gift card to one of our many discounters, or use your membership card to purchase gloves, seeds, trowel, pruners, or a pot to go along with the membership gift. Add a copy of the Society’s 2023 calendar or our The Growing Journal gardening journal to make it a complete Society gift. A membership paired with a good wine is always welcomed, too!

Garden centres are great places to do your gift shopping!
